Mission, Vision, Values

Mission

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ throughout Cumberland County, southern New Jersey and into the rest of the world, through the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God.

Values

Liturgical Worship: We believe that worship should be spirit-filled and truth-filled, speaking to the heart and the mind, and impacting our daily life.

Biblical teaching: We believe that the Bible teaches us out to know Christ and how we should live our life in response to Him.

Community (spiritual family): We believe that members of the church are the family of God, building one another up by developing trust and intimacy with each other, supporting one another in their gifts and in the work of mission.

Incarnational Outreach: We believe that mission involves going to people where they are, being the hands and feet of Jesus, providing both physical and spiritual assistance, being the gospel with them.

Prayer: We believe that prayer fuels everything, that intimacy with God comes from spending time in prayer, speaking and listening to Him.

Mercy: We believe in giving mercy as we have received mercy, by seeking to understand where someone is coming from and helping them, without judgment but with grace, embracing the outcast.

Hope: We believe that all things are possible through Christ, that hope in him is the heart of the good news and our very lives.

Vision

Grounded in Grace

We are a community who believes that you are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. It is his grace that roots us in Christ at our salvation.

While God’s grace is a free gift, we need to persevere in our salvation. To do this, we keep reminded of our need for grace through the practice of classic spiritual disciplines, both corporately and individually.

We seek to remain grounded in grace corporately through worship, teachings, and group devotions, and individually through personal Scripture reading and meditation, prayer, and other spiritual disciplines.

(Values: worship, teaching, prayer)

Growing in Grace

We are a community that seeks to become spiritually mature, through the process of sanctification, which is done accomplished through the grace of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit alone.

We seek to grow as disciples of Christ in community, learning how to apply God’s gift of grace to our lives by encouraging one another, teaching one another, praying for one another that our every thought, word and action would reveal God’s grace.

(Values: community, teaching, worship, prayer)

Going in Grace

We are a community that seeks to be obedient to the call to make disciples, sharing the grace of God in all of life.

We seek to do this by living irresistible lives, viewing all of life as the place God has called us to share his grace, being in the world but not of it, creating opportunities for grace to be communicated.

(Values: incarnational outreach, mercy, prayer, hope)
